Trekking Tour in the wild of South India

Trekking is considered to be one of the famous adventure sports in India. Unexplored jungles, breathtaking beauty of the mountains and hills offer enthralling trekking routes.

Trekking has not been very common in South India, but here we will try and explore the unexplored parts of the nature in wilds of South India, considered to be God’s own country.

Heading out from historic port town of Cochin along the Malabar Coast you travel along open countryside rich in plantations of tea, coffee, cardamom, rubber and legendary pepper from which great fortunes have been made even in ancient Rome. Your journey will be by road and on waterways in the traditional Kettuvallom house boats, Kerala's evocative answer to the caravans of the West. Overnight stay will be in Camps and charming bungalows replete with atmospheric touches.

This is a suggested tour. It can be tailor made to suit your requirements. Please contact us for a tailor made holiday.
